Insidious Rays
The Insidious Rays are a rock band that spans multiple styles of music. Hailing from Bethlehem, PA, The Insidious Rays have been performing since Jan 2001. Originally a 4-track recording project of singer/guitarist Matt Juknevic, the Rays took form as a 3 piece band with Jon Braun on drums and Michael Davidson on bass. Since their inception, the Rays evolved into a 5-piece band. They have released three full-length albums; “More Songs About Death, Love, Sex and Death” (2003), “Exotic Handshakes“ (2005) and a retrospective of previously unreleased material called “Volume One And Two” (2016). Their explosive live performances have received acclaim from audiences of all demographics, and attracted the attention of producer Andrew Weiss (Ween, Rollins Band, Butthole Surfers, Yoko Ono, and Grammy winners Café Tacuba). Weiss engineered and produced the album, Exotic Handshakes. The Insidious Rays are: Matt Juknevic (vocals/guitar), Jon Braun (drums/vocals), Michael Davidson (guitar), Seth Juknevic (bass) and Chris McDermott (guitar and keys).
Sprocket was conceived in late 2011. The line-up began as a power-trio, adding piano to the line-up in late 2012. The band began writing and performing in earnest in 2013, releasing their first full album "Tropical Bushwick" in March 2013.

The band's powerful mix of thoughtful songwriting and incendiary improvisation has been featured and reviewed on notable publications such as Jambase, Jambands, Dubera, SensibleReason, and TheBarnPresents...all of which can be found on the band's website, The word has slowly been getting out about the NYC jam scene's best kept secret, as the quartet has grown to headline notable clubs such as The Knitting Factory, Webster Hall Studio, Brooklyn Bowl and Mercury Lounge.
Based out of New York City, Polyvamp is a high energy, improvisational groove, electronic and funk experience. Each show brings experimental jams that create funky soundscapes and musical adventures. Polyvamp performed in the 2015 CMJ Jam Showcase and has played at top NYC venues such as Drom, The Knitting Factory, Fontana's, The Bitter End and American Beauty.
